York senior league round-up

Dunnington batted first at Easingwold and made 152-8. Jack Bolam hit a useful 62 whilst Kev Bradley supported with 29. Paul Redshaw was the pick of the home bowling with 4-63 whilst one time county player Nick Thornicroft took 3-63 on his first outing for his new club.

Easingwold’s reply failed to get underway after the weather deteriorated during the tea break.

Having narrowly missed out on a speedy return to the premier division last year, Acomb made a fine start when they gained a march on their division one rivals by chalking up one of only three wins on the day.

Having gained promotion in 2011 thanks to impressive batting by their openers, Jamie Rigby and Matt Westwood, Bolton Percy face a difficult task as neither player is available this season, with Westwood leaving the area and Rigby opting to retire.

This lack of batting was evident as they were whipped out for just 89 with Acomb skipper Simon Brown taking 6-25 and Joe Dale 3-47. Andy Green then made 29 as, with ex-Dringhouses player Sam Lingard making 25, Acomb moved to a seven-wicket victory.
